Reviews and Ratings

Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A really nice medium yellow Chardonnay from the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County in California. Aromas of caramel, melon and tropical fruits are crisp and refreshing. A blend of 50% american and french oak gives this chardonnay some nice crisp fruit flavours with a hint of caramel in the background. It has a smooth medium bodied finish of tropical fruits. This wine pairs well with honey garlic chicken.
The aromatics of this chardonnay just jump out of the glass with fresh green apple, tropical and pineapple fruit leading the way along with brown baking spices and an underpinning of oak. Rich and medium bodied in the mouth, the wine shows plenty of bright and sunny pineapple, mango, apple and citrus flavors, along with a tang of caramel.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
